Many* of you will have wondered about the true meaning of my signature.

Well, this is it.

It spent most of its life in St Margret's Hope, but it apparently made a trip to Cornwall once:

 

40406114094_5d6d3d8f5a_b.jpg

 

 

And possibly to Spain:

 

39307897860_40cabd8cca_b.jpg

 

 

Inside it's practically new:

40406107274_c8031ab496_b.jpg

 

39307893970_24642ae245_z.jpg

 

 

Which is not surprising considering its mileage:

My Classic Tyre Department®

 

 

Yooneeroil, the raen toire:

And a tyre with a daft tyre name:

Der Einspritzer:

 

40406100084_9537fa39d7_b.jpg

 

 

Looks like it's been lifted straight from a Messerschmidt:

 

39307889380_7eaafaed03_b.jpg

 

 

Throttle linkage is soooo OMGRHD:

 

40406095814_be890f3010_b.jpg

 

Hence rocker adjustment costs a Tenner more in the UK.

 

 

A hovering horn is not that unusual:

 

39307886900_15958e03b8_b.jpg

 

 

But how am I doing in the coveted Trim Hovering In Mid Air Trophy?

Yeah, I know. Must try harder.

A lot more hard wearing!

 

 

These are lovely cars. They're incredibly handsome things which drive like a large power boat and drip with a strange charisma. It is nigh-on impossible not to smile when driving one (especially with a V8!) My uncle had a 280SE 3.5 many years ago in the same colour as this, but with stacked headlights. It was wonderful. They have the same easy superiority as the Silver Shadow. A proper Mercedes - and they haven't made one of those for a long time.

If you want a complete spares car ( & I do mean spares) a good friend in Brighton has one sitting under a tarp.

Last I saw it was kinda in the way, and he offered it to me for free. Sadly, I have no need, and the effort of shifting it with no immediate agenda put me off, but if you want it, PM me - I'll put you in touch.

Loved mine, back in the day, but don't miss it enough..

Lovely old M130 as well, superb.

 

Spurr Classics in Sheffield had a stunning one of these in an orangey red, crisp as a new fiver and about £15'000. Strange how W108's are so undervalued compared with the Mark II Jag which of course is vastly inferior.

 

I have actually sat in Hitler's Merc. It was at the NEC around 30 years ago, roped off and the ropes meant it was perfectly okay for me to leap over, sit in the back and have a picture taken. I got a bollocking. I wasn't even doing the salute FFS.

In 1994 I was between Company cars so bought the black 280CE as a stop gap. In 1996 I changed jobs to one without a company car, I liked the black one so much I bought the white one. I used the white one as my daily for 3 years including maxing it out in Germany at over 120 mph, good times.
